The 4 poster bed was incredible -even had a little step so you could get in! All the staff were so great, from the minute we checked in they all made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was lovely and we can't wait to go back!

This was my 3rd stay at this hotel. I've always enjoyed the close proximity to Bath central and the great breakfast choice and stay here to go to the Xmas market. However the customer service is really quite flat and flakey. The gentleman on reception had no personality whatsoever. He didn't even give me eye contact when we were checking...

I am replying to this review as one of the owners of The Royal Hotel. I was very disappointed to read your review, especially as you have stayed with us on two previous occasions, which you have always enjoyed. I note that your disappointment on this occasion was due entirely to the behaviour of one of our receptionists when you...

Staff really friendly and helpful. Room comfy with nice big bed. Shower good. Hotel central to City Centre and within walking distance of all shops. Had a wonderful time and really enjoyed my stay. Breakfast will set you up for the day. You will not be disappointed with The Royal.

Arrived early on Friday afternoon and a very helpful member of staff took our luggage to store until our room was ready. Had a nice lunch in bar and a quick look around town. On returning was shown to a very comfortable room overlooking the station which was more than adequate for my daughter and myself. We enjoyed the breakfast...

Really enjoyed returning to this lovely warm and friendly hotel for two nights from 9th to 11th December 2015. Staff are so welcoming and the breakfasts and dinners were wonderfully cooked and beautifully presented. Perfect location as opposite Bath Spa Station. Cosy bedroom with immaculate en suite facilities. Could not fault anything. Looking forward to planning next year's return visit!

We stayed as a family at The Royal for two nights as we were attending a celebration in the city. The receptionists Heidi and Ellie(?) were both very friendly and helpful - a real credit to the hotel. In fact, all the staff with just one exception were great. Our room was beautiful and a baby bath had been provided...

A dated but well located hotel. The interior is tired and rooms need updating. Rooms are clean but small in the main. The breakfast is decent and the bar drinks are reasonably priced. Staff can sometimes be a bit hit and miss on their helpfulness. A useful place to lay your head if you're out and about a lot during...

I was disappointed to read your review following your recent stay with us. With respect, we do not accept that our interior is tired and the rooms need updating as again I would respectfully remind you, the property is a Grade II listed building which was designed and built in 1846.
